I am happy the way God has made me as a woman, and I’ll like to present myself in this manner.
--Barbara Ann Willoughby
To the Janes & Jennys on the Street
J&J:Wow. You have really long hair! Why don't you cut it?
You:(give a smile) Why is there a need to cut it?
J&J:Singapore's so hot, isn't it?
You:(politely ask back) Wow. You have really nice clothes! Why don't you wear uglier clothes? They are cheaper and more functional.
You:You see... It is innate for us to please someone. When we wear nice clothes, we are trying to look presentable to the people around us and please the people we meet. It just happens that I am trying to please another crowd. When I leave uncut hair, I am trying to look presentable in front of the angels around me and please my King, Jesus, whom I meet with and talk to every day.
To all you beautiful apostolic girls <3 <3

‘This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil, where the forerunner has entered for us, even Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.’
randomly chose one part from this sermon by Rev Jeff Arnold to put it here and share it with whoever. =)
‘I’ve got an anchor; sure and steadfast that’s holding me.’
-Rev Jeff Arnold
Too many of us want to escape when God wants us to experience;
Too many of us want to be delivered when God wants us to discover.
--Rev Jeff Arnold
“Salvation is the most elastic word in the Bible”
watch the video. =)
Forgiveness is not avoiding God’s justice…
-It is allowing God to execute His justice in His time and in His way.
Forgiveness is not waiting for “time to heal all wounds.”…
-It is clear that time doesn’t heal wounds - some people will not allow healing.
Forgiveness is not letting the guilty “off the hook.”…
-It is moving the guilty from your hook to God’s hook.
Forgiveness is not the same as reconciliation…
-It takes two for reconciliation, only one for forgiveness.
Forgiveness is not excusing unjust behaviour…
-It is acknowledging that unjust behaviour is without excuse, while still forgiving.
Forgiveness is not explaining away the hurt…
-It is working through the hurt.
Forgiveness is not based on what is fair…
-It was not “fair” for Jesus to hang on the cross.
Forgiveness is not being a weak martyr…
-It is being strong enough to be Christlike.
Forgiveness is not suppressing your anger…
-It is resolving your anger by releasing the offense to God.
Forgiveness is not a natural response…
-It is a supernatural response, empowered by God.
Forgiveness is not denying the hurt…
-It is feeling the hurt and releasing it.
Forgiveness is not being a doormat…
-It is seeing that, if this were so, Jesus would have been the greatest doormat of all.
Forgiveness is not conditional…
-It is unconditional, a mandate from God to everyone.
Forgiveness is not forgetting…
-It is necessary to remember before you can forgive.
Forgiveness is not a feeling…
-It is a choice - an act of the will.
21st Century Disciples Notes
Doctrine is the vehicle to take Jesus to the people.
You and I need people in our lives who cheat us, betray us, deceive us, and who cut us deeply. Why? Because they help the crucifying of our flesh, and let us step into resurrection turf.
--Rev Jeff Arnold
